SOURCE: 80a fusible link 95 4runner keeps blowing

You either have a short somewhere, or the alternator is over charging. What does the volt gauge read before it blows, if you don't have a gauge, get a volt meter and test at the battery. Anything over 14.5 will blow the link.

SOURCE: glow plugs stopped working on a pajero 2.8td 1994

My glow rail would come on for a very short time, then turn off (less than 1 second).
Replaced the control wire for the glow relay, with a test lead from battery to relay control terminal - relay was working fine (relay is between batteries).

Checked the engine temperature sensor (located on top of the housing where the top radiator hose attaches to the engine).
Take out and test in a pot of water (need a 19mm deep socket to remove).
At 0 deg C should be 8.6K ohms
At 20 deg C should be 3.25K ohms
At 40 deg C should be 1.5 K ohms
At 80 deg C should be 300 ohms
I replaced the temperature sensor with a 8.2K ohm resistor (engine cold).
Then tried with a 1.2K ohm resistor (engine hot).
Each time I tested the glow rail at the relay (with a multimeter) it would turn off after about 12-14 seconds, which is normal, to protect the glow plugs and battery drain (they come on again when engine is starting).

When I put the temperature sensor back in, the glow rail was working fine again - only thing I can think of is that the contact between the sensor and the plug, may have had a oxide formed and caused a high resistance or open circuit, indicating to the glow controller that the engine was hot and did not need glow activation.
So try taking the plug off the temperature sensor, and reattaching it again it might be all it needs, to clean its contacts.

this sounds like the glow plug relay is u/s or stuck, locate the relay in your fues box and give it a tap or remove it and replace it, it might have just come loose, if this does not work it will need replacing...hope that helps

Why my 80 amp fuse blows?

take the alternator in for a bench test as the dead short is in that unit
could be blown diode block, shorted windings , shorted brush insulators , shorted insulator around the bolt that the wire is attached to
once the alternator problem is fixed the rest of the symptoms should fix them selves

My 2000 crown Victoria keeps popping my dashbord light fuse!!!

If the fuse keeps blowing, you have a short circuit to a ground somewhere. The fuse protects the wiring from burning up. They, tool companies, make a short tester that takes the place of the fuse and buzzes when the short is present and stops buzzing when you move or locate the wire that is "shorted". Repair the wire that is touching a ground an the harness somewhere and then replace the fuse. Good luck, could be obvious like a coin stuck in the cigarette lighter or just some wiring someone has done recently.

Hello, in my Mitsubishi L200 (2004) the circuitbreaker ( no 4) for my tail- and dim lights keeps popping. So I am searching for the wiring diagram to find out what could cause this short circuiting

You may have a shorted light in one of the tail or turn signal assemblies. You can get a wiring diagram, but you will still start there; testing all four corners, all lights and wires behind the plugs, and you will find the culprit. If you have a tow package, try disconnecting the trailer plug. Those go bad and you will spend days tracing nothing !

Interier fuse keeps blowing on start

It will be a dead short causing the fuse to blow. It could be in the starter motor or associated solenoid. Or in the glow plug relay circuit. Disconnect the glow plugs from the power wire to ensure they are not causing it, they probably wont be. N try to find the relay that operates them and un plug that. It will become a process of elimination. I hope that helps

97f350 fuse blowing to glow plugs how do i unplug the fuel warmer

You will need to check all the glow plugs for resistance. Most likely one melted and is shorted.

First unplug them all and see if the fuse blows. If they still blow then you have a wire shorted somewhere. If they dont then keep pluging the glow plus back in until you find the one that pops. The resistance on that one will be 0 which would indicate a short.

Battery connection

This is your main fusible link (fuse)

Replace the fuse with another 80A one, if it blows again you have a dead short somewhere on the main wiring, else it could be that you got some water in the wirng that caused the fuse to blow.

If it blows again, take it to an auto electrician to trace the fault.
